We did some really great work today, and had fun doing it!  We installed 14
GNU-Linux work stations in 3 classrooms at the public charter KIPP San
Francisco Bay Academy at Geary and Scott Streets.  Thanks very much to Eric
S., Joe Puig, Grant Bowman, Michael Paoli, Elizabeth Krumbach, and Michelle
Mastin, for doing a really fast, great job with these installs!  The
teachers are gonna love these machines!  Here are a few pics from Elizabeth
Krumbach and Michelle Mastin:




The 7th grade social studies teacher is going to use the machines for
student video editing.  The 6th grade social studies teacher is going to use
the machines for student research.  The 5th grade math teacher is going to
use the machines for student math practice.  This is a really meaningful
contribution to public schools that otherwise would not have the money to
get computers into these teachers' classrooms!  Thanks everyone for the
great work that you did today!

If anyone is interested in helping Partimus.org put computers into schools,
we are excited to get your help.  If you are too busy, but have a few
dollars that you can spare, contributions are also welcome!  Donating can be
as easy as buying some Ubuntu-themed earrings for someone you love:


There will be plenty more events like this one, if you didn't get a chance
to come today!
